I am not a biologist either, and my last course on biology was taken in 1974, at a time when nobody even dreamed of ever decoding the human genome (and nobody even dreamed of having a computer on her or his desktop), and I agree with the persons who answered to you before. Please state your problem in terms of data manipulation and processing, so that non biologists can help you.

From what you said, however, I understand that your data is forming patterns and that, sometimes, searched patterns overlap line breaks and are not recognized in this case. Is my understanding correct? I can think of at least half a dozen solutions or work around tricks on this, but we need more information to figure out which are relevant to your problem and which are not possible.
You should provide the code you are using (or a sufficient subset of your code dispaying the problem), an idea of the size of the files your are working on (some of the best solutions working on a 10 MB file will not be suitable for a 2 GB file or more), a slightly larger sample of the data you are working on, and an explanation of data processing rules that need to be applied.
